Event design and technical production specialist Maestra Group has announced a new partnership with the Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain for the debut of the resort’s Arena, a new 43,000 square foot, conference and exhibition facility. The Maestra group has also opened a base in Bahrain.
As the exclusive event partner, Maestra will oversee all technical aspects of the new Arena facility, which offers a full set-up and capacity for banquet receptions and global conferences, complemented with Ritz-Carlton service, hotel and resort facilities and catering.
Commenting on the partnership, Maestra’s Tom Clements said: “We are extremely excited about this new venture and to be involved in such a high profile and incredibly well-designed event space. For Maestra Group, this is a logical expansion of our work in Dubai, and it will also be the first step in some strategic expansion plans for Maestra Group in the Middle East.”
Bernard de Villèle, General Manager of the Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain added: “As Bahrain becomes a global destination for premiere conferences and events in the region, it’s our pleasure to partner with Maestra and unveil a new conference facility complemented with our signature Ritz-Carlton brand service we’re known for globally.”
“With modern interiors and high-tech capabilities, The Arena stands to be one of the sought-after venues in the region and a perfect addition to the resorts already existing portfolio.”
Adding to its portfolio of indoor and outdoor spaces, totalling over 90,000 square feet, including two ballrooms and meeting spaces, the new Arena, a 4,200-capacity multi-purpose venue, debuts as the largest in the Kingdom.
The new venue is designed to host conferences, trade shows, car launches, seminars, music concerts, exhibitions and more.
Maestra Bahrain will include a core project management and technical team as well as an essential inventory of sound, lighting, AV and rigging equipment.
Working in close conjunction with the Dubai base, Maestra Bahrain will have easy access to the vast resources there – both in terms of human skills, expertise, ideas and the latest technologies in all disciplines.
“Our new set-up will allow us to service events utilising The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain facilities and services plus other Maestra clients in and around Bahrain quickly and efficiently with everything they need for a great event – from design to technical production,” noted Clements.
